HUTT CITY HEALTH CENTRE 3619022AC Fun of races makes up for early starts By AMY JACKMAN Medal haul: Emily McGill shows off her haul of gold medals from the inaugural New Zealand Secondary School competition. Lower Hutt student Emily McGill, 17, blitzed the competition at the inaugural New Zealand Secondary School Swimming Competition last month with a haul of seven golds and one silver. The Chilton Saint James pupil won gold in the 50m, 100m and 200m breaststroke, 200m individ- ual medley, 200m backstroke, 50m breaststroke skins and 50 butterfly skins. Skins competition involves eight swimmers completing the 50m swim four times in eight minutes, with the two slowest swimmers dropping out after each 50m. She won silver in the 50m butterfly and also equalled the Wellington 50m breaststroke record. The most satisfying win came in the 50m butter- fly skins. I entered the 'fly one because I had gotten second in the 'fly the previous day, so I was like, I may as well, and I ended up winning it. In the final race it was me verses the girl from the previous day who had beat me and I wasn't expecting to beat her, so that was good.'' After only swimming competitively for a year, she won her first medal in the 50m breaststroke at age nine and has since won it eight consecutive times. Emily trains for just under 20 hours a week over 10 swim sessions at the Capital Swim Club in Wellington, under former Commonwealth Games representative Gary Hurring. Once you get past the stage of hating early mornings, and now I am training in town it's even earlier, I think you learn how to get over how annoying training can be because racing is so fun.'' Future goals for the star swimmer include mak- ing the New Zealand squad for the Junior Pan Pacific Swimming championships in Hawaii next year and qualifying for the Commonwealth Games and 2016 Olympics.
